About Grace Jones

One of the more unforgettable characters to emerge from New York City's hedonistic Studio 54 disco scene, Grace Jones' best-known and strongest releases -- 1980's Warm Leatherette and 1981's Nightclubbing -- came after her switch from disco to a more new wave direction. After Living My Life followed in 1982, the singer took a break from recording to focus on film work, landing roles in Conan the Destroyer and the James Bond flick A View to a Kill. Jones returned to recording with 1985's autobiographical album Slave to the Rhythm, but after 1989's Bulletproof Heart, Jones again turned away from recording as she focused on her movie career. ~ Greg Prato
